PlanOn Announces Printstik: “World’s Smallest Portable Bluetooth & USB Printer”


Mississauga, Canada—PlanOn, a provider of scanning and printing solutions for the mobile professional, announced PrintStik, which it is marketed as the “world’s smallest full-page portable Bluetooth and USB printer.”

Featuring PlanOn’s new SaaS (Software as a Service) cloud-based Mobile Enhanced Print application, PrintStik prints from Android and BlackBerry smartphones (more platforms coming soon) via Bluetooth, as well as from computers and laptops through USB, for printing anywhere, anytime.

Preloaded with 20 pages of self-contained paper (no ink needed) for 600-dpi resolution printing and a rechargeable battery, PrintStik measures 1x2x11 inches, making it easy to carry in a coat pocket, laptop bag or purse.

“Whether you’re a road warrior business traveler who needs to print your boarding pass while racing to the airport, a realtor printing the listing info en route to show a home, or a soccer mom printing the after-school game schedule, PrintStik gives you the ultimate in flexibility and convenience,” said Doug Verkaik, CEO of PlanOn. “We are delivering a complete ‘office in a pocket’ solution. PrintStik’s new Mobile Enhanced print in-the-cloud service brings a whole new dimension to mobility.”

The mobile “office in a pocket” enables printing on the go from laptops or smartphones, whether it be photos, e-mails, receipts, invoices, calendar appointments, web pages, maps or boarding passes.

The PlanOn Mobile Enhanced Print application subscription is free of charge for the first full year for the PrintStik PS950 mobile printer, and free for six months for the PS905 mobile printer, priced at $29.99/year thereafter. The service captures the full content of any document or attachment, or the location of a web page currently being viewed, and automatically converts it to a print-ready file format, sending it through the smartphone directly to the PrintStik for instant printing. PlanOn’s PrintStik PS905ME mobile printer retails for $299.
